check your server configuration:
* make sure that the repository path is correct
* the repository path must not be inside another path (e.g. you have the
repository under htdocs instead of its own path, exported via a
<Location> block in the apache config)

then, check if there's no proxy between your subversion client and the
server. Many proxies block DAV requests (not because they filter, simply
because they don't know them and reject everything they don't know).
If it's a proxy/firewall problem, switch to using https instead of http
to access the repository.

btw: a quick google search with "Subversion PROPFIND" will give you a
lot of hints.
